Given the unfortunate constraints on travel faced by our many colleagues, the Symposium on Agri-Tech Economics for Sustainable Futures is moving fully into the virtual world... something we started doing during the 2019 workshop, with presenters streaming in from all over the globe.
As part of the program we are planning on organising a number of themes and special sessions, with some of these special sessions focused on contemporary issues and technical methods.... watch this space!
